The hosts are super, but the food is not. The entire house needs a good, solid cleaning, and rooms need to be serviced each day. They were never touched. The best part was the nightly conversation with fellow guests. Disappointing!

Our rooms are serviced daily. The only time we do not enter a room is if it has Do Not Disturb sign up. Our staff does not make the bed if guests have a large amount of items on it, especially tech items. We clean the guest areas regularly and are performing certain tasks on a daily basis. If you...

Comfortable, beautiful, sumptuous, accommodating, relaxing, carefree, and attentive are only a few of the adjectives that come to mind when attempting to describe our wonderful weekend getaway experience at 1889 WhiteGate Inn & Cottage. Our stay in the Maya Angelou Suite was absolutely delightful, and the service at the inn exemplary throughout. Each member of the staff was most gracious,...

This b&b is stunning. The house is beautifully furnished and you feel both at home yet peeking back into another time. We stayed in the Emily Dickenson suite and I recommend it. Lovely furnishings and a comfy bed. So many little touches to make you feel welcome. My favorite was the little container of lip balm to help you out...

The evening reception was tastefully done, the breakfast was unusual and tasty. I would go back if I were in Asheville again. The location was close to town, restaurants and places to see. The hosts really made our stay special. This was an old home that has been modernized but still retains the character that it had when it was...

We stayed here back in August of 2015. It was a stay-cation for my wife's birthday. This was our first B+B experience and it was a very enjoyable one. The house was beautiful on the inside. The staff was very friendly and offered us a glass of wine. We loved the brownies and other light snacks that were made available...

This place is awesome! From check in to check out, the treatment is amazing. The staff is very accomodating and the suite and breakfast are outstanding. An amazing value for the experience. The location made it easy to park the car for the weekend and walk the rest of the time. Highly recommend!!

We spent a few days in Asheville for our anniversary. We love bed and breakfast inns. We stayed in the Ralph Waldo Emerson room.....fantastic! I love rich colors. Every time we came in the room, I turned on the gas fireplace.....homey! The bathroom was huge!! Although the large walk-in shower was great....I can't believe we waited until the last night...

I was very specific about needing a room without any steps due to physical limitations. Although there were no steps to deal with in the room itself, there are steps involved when trying to walk from the room to the main house for breakfast and a steep driveway. This made it very difficult for me throughout my stay. There is...

I have reported this person's reviews in the past as she actively threatened to blackmail us with "a bad TripAdvisor review", if we did not refund her over $400. We directed this person to use the front entrance as we do with anybody who cannot use the stairs. The doorbells battery happened to expire overnight so that is why we...

Staying at the whitegate inn was simply amazing. I have never in my life been in a more beautiful inn.
